The validity of the Bianchi identity, which is intimately connected with the zig zag symmetry, is established, for piecewise continuous contours, in the context of Polakov’s gauge field–string connection in the large ’t Hooft coupling limit, according to which the chromoelectric ‘string’ propagates in five dimensions with its ends attached on a Wilson loop in four dimensions. An explicit check in the wavy line approximation is presented.
